The Curious Case of Jared Kushner..... When I began Caucus earlier this year, my intent was to make it non-political. The focus was politics of course, but I wanted to get past party and principal and focus on what I usually do, hot men. I have featured Democratic men, Republican men and many media men covering the current political circus.
I did however, have no intent on covering anyone named Trump, and Jared Kushner is still a hair, (although an increasingly thin one) from the stump himself. Kushner was on my list to feature from the start, but his increasingly strong role in Trumps campaign had him moved to the bottom of the list.
Kushner is an interesting guy, intelligence, accomplished and incredibly hot. Like his wive Ivanka, Kushner was a fairly well known democrat in the past. Kushner has donated over $100, 000 to democratic candidates over the year and in 2013, bundled money for New Jersey democratic Senator Cory Booker's Senate campaign, eeven osting a fundraiser for the candidate in Kushner's Trump owned penthouse,
One can't deny Kushner's appeal however, when seeing these recent shots of he and Ivanka vacationing on David Geffen's yacht. Kushner looks incredibly hot wrapping his towel around his lean and perfectly toned body.
Sad to see Kushner now fully swept up into the shit storm that is the Trump campaign. Hard to know if is pressure from his wife and father and law, or his own political and professional ambition. I can't help but think that if Stump weren't running, Kushner and his wife might be on the trail for Clinton. Either way, they're making their own choices. Family or not, if my father, whom I love deeplty, were making publicly dangerous, hateful and racist statements, I would be walking away.
I have always been a collector. The subjects I collected varied; celebrities, movies and television shows, animals, sports stars and mythical creatures, but the items I saved all came in the same form, paper. I saved photos and articles, magazine pages, posters, flyers, movie stubs and theatre programs. I had filing cabinets organized, and disorganized, featuring my collections.
Starting in the early 80's when I just a kid, I filled plastic folders, large manilla envelopes, file folders and boxes full of articles and pictures of Star Wars and dozens of my favorite movies; Charlene Tilton and Alyssa Milano and may other tv stars, Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy and dozens of other NHL stars.
Interwoven within these files were also discreetly places images of hot men. No one seemed to care too much if there were some shirtless pin-ups or shots of Mark-Paul Gosselaar or Will Friedle if they were stashed in with some female stars.
Prior to getting a computer in the early 90's, these collections brought so many hours of enjoyment. I loved organizing them, reading, looking at them and putting them in scrapbooks. A great winter's night would be pulling out my files and adding new articles and images I torn out of the that week's set of magazines that I had bought.
Sadly, people don't collect paper the way they used to. Computer's make it far too easy to stick a bunch of images in a folder. It isn't the same however without the touch, without the smell, without the physical piece of paper in your hands. Obviously I threw much (or my mother did) of what I had collected out when I moved out of my family's home. I did however box up my favorites to keep. Pulling out that box a few years ago was a trip.
There are still many collectors out there, collectors of every item known to man, including man himself. I have been surprised from time to time when photographers tell me some of the shots I am featured were commissioned by collectors. Collectors who have certain visions of the male form, Fetishes or particular scenarios they love to experience visually through image and art.
This had me thinking about my collections and one of the pieces that computers don't allow you to experience... the anticipation. I remember when I used to order celebrity shots from Jerry Ohlinger's, a New York based movie material store. Although I visited in persons a few times when in NY, mostly I ordered from descriptions. I would write them my desires, and they would send me back typed descriptions of the images they had. I would love waiting for my packages to arrive and what awaited me inside.
With computers exhibiting the work of artists without fee's or commissions, people are buying prints as they used to. One of the reasons might be hassle it sometimes takes to contact and find the images you want through a site. Some photographers however, have bypassed this step by selling on e-bay, the easiest point and click way to buy almost anything you desire. Prairie Visions Photographers is one of those artists.
I first featured Prairie Visions artistry back in 2009, and have since showcased many of the incredible images, and hot men from Kendal's vast, and erotically charged, collection. If you're a collector of men, or thinking it is time you become one, check out Prairie Visions e-bay store. Even if you don't buy it now, you can enjoy and enlarge Kendal's images to see so much more of his work. These image are just the tip.
